Child custody, moving out of state.

I want a divorce and want to move out of state. I want to take my 2 young children with me. I think it would be better to leave my 2 high school age children with their father. If I leave the state with my 2 young children, without the fathers consent can I be forced to bring them back? I plan on filing for Divorce as soon as i move to the new state. I will not file here. I need to get away from this state and his family. Should I file before i leave here or after I arrive in the new state. I have been told that if I file in the new state, it will have jurisdiction. Is this true? Can the father keep me from taking the children.
